5 Bento, Main dish, Side dish, and Snack recipes with Almonds, Beef stock, Canned tomatoes, Dried onion, Mirin, Nori seaweed, Pork loin, and Water made by Frying for No eggs diet

Red bean and pepper meatballs

This is my favorite meatballs recipe to date. It's spicy, it's rich, it's deliciously thick and serves as a complete meal on it's own. It's one of my never failed meals, because it's impossible to make it taste bad, it can even survive burning (a bit :P), wrong order of cooking, missing ingredients and virtually any cooking disaster you can imagine ;-)

Teriyaki pork strips with shallots bento

This simple recipe requires only 3 ingredients: sliced pork loin (already mentioned minute steaks or easy steaks), shallots and teriyaki sauce. It's also one of the lazy recipes — part of it you can prepare evening before, and finish it quickly before serving or packing your bento box. Plus, marinating for a long time allows increased flavors to transfer easily across the meat!

Marinated beef and pasta bento

Bento is not only rice, but also other ingredients, like... pasta. This recipe came to life when I had some uncooked beef left-overs and just wondered what to do with them. Cooking them as a part of bento was a great idea!

Pineapple teriyaki curry with chicken

Give yourself an oriental, savory feast with this simple, yet very spectacular dish. Simple, tasty, and doesn't require lots of ingredients, which is a perfect idea for a nice, cozy evening.

Teriyaki pork cutlets

This recipe is easy to prepare, cooks in no time and you can prepare everything basically day before if you wish to give the flavors more time to distribute. And because it's cooked with almost no extra fat, it's really lean and healthy for summer dinners, when you don't really feel like eating anything heavy. A massive win!
